Comfort from the Psalms 

We’re starting a new Sentinel column called “Comfort from the Psalms.” We invite you to share with readers the comfort and spiritual strength that the Bible’s book of Psalms can bring to each of us in our practice of Christian Science. If a particular psalm or verse has been integral to a healing, or has been a guidepost in your life, the ideas you have to share could be very helpful to others. For submission information visit jsh.christianscience.com/submit. Please indicate the column title in the “Author comments” field.

The ideas expressed in Margaret Lewis’s article “Regeneration in retirement” (June 22, 2015, Sentinel) reminded me of my early retirement from a teaching career. I told my middle school students that the word retire does not mean an end, but means putting on new tires for the journey. That new attitude is what Margaret Lewis discovered after retirement as she prayed about symptoms of heart trouble and found her way to healing. Her well-written account provides a practical example of what Mary Baker Eddy said, “Be of good cheer; the warfare with one’s self is grand; it gives one plenty of employment …” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 118). Bravo to Margaret, and thanks, Editors!
